Pro touring cars really do combine the best of both worlds—you
have the classic styling of yesterday with all the comfort and
performance features of today.
One outstanding example is this absolutely stunning 1968 Camaro RS convertible. Built with consideration of both form and function, this Camaro is a three-time participant in the Hot Rod Power Tour. Its Black finish has laser straight reflection that is further enhanced by its show quality triple-plated chrome and rocker and wheel moldings, which are in excellent condition. Red rallye stripes which span its cowl induction hood and trunk add just the right amount of pop. Other features you’ll appreciate include its Black Hartz convertible top, Billet Specialties polished aluminum wheels wrapped with Michelin low profile radial tires, hide away headlamps, tinted glass, and LED tail lamps. Make no mistake—this is a car that gets noticed.
Distinction is not relegated to the exterior, however. This Camaro’s interior is equally impressive, featuring heated power black and red leather bucket seats with a genuine wood center console. Other features that will keep you comfortable are its ice cold Vintage air conditioning, Flaming River tilt steering wheel, and XM satellite radio ready-Panasonic AM/FM/CD stereo. Also included is a built in navigation system. You’ll also appreciate its power windows and full complement of Classic Instruments gauges. Not only does this interior look stunning, but it is very comfortable as well.
Under the hood you will find a 5.7 liter LS1 Corvette engine mated to a 700R automatic transmission. The engine compartment shows beautifully, and features ceramic coated headers and custom painted plenum covers signed by Chip Foose. Polished aluminum air cleaner housing, air conditioning compressor and radiator overflow canister, and chrome pulleys, alternator and master cylinder will also catch the eye. Other performance enhancements include the following:
• Power steering
• Braided stainless steel power steering lines
• Front sway bar
• Strong Arm tubular upper and lower control arms
• Adjustable coilovers
• Professionally tied & tubbed frame rails
• Flowmaster 2 ½” dual exhaust
• Currie limited slip rear-end with 3.50 gears
• 4-wheel power disc brakes
• Drilled & slotted rotors
• Custom stainless steel gas tank
• Electric fuel pump
• Painless wiring
• Electric pusher & puller fans
